Most people were already complaining about the price and size/weight of the present 12-35mm F2.8, can you imagine what they would be saying about something better, heavier, and faster than a constant F2.8?


Price I can understand, size feels fine to me tho, actually feels smaller than I expected... Seems perfectly sized for a G series (whereas the new kit zoom actually feels undersized on those bodies), maybe a little unbalanced on a GF/GX, but just a little. I think I'm sending the one I bought back for a replacement tho, zoom ring catches a little AND it's making a weird rubbing sound (like some rubber part is scraping), just doesn't seem as smooth as what everyone describes.
